But then, if Juan Or is to put on the slippers himself, then that can be quite a problem. ^ ^

Learning to Wear Japanese-styled Rubber Slippers
Long time ago, when Mommy was just one to two months before giving birth to Juan Or, Mommy saw Tesco sold a pair of Japanese-styled rubber slippers for only RM1.90 or RM1.50 (can't remember). That price was very cheap so Mommy bought it as preparation for Juan Or's toddlerhood.
After sitting in storage for slightly less than two years, finally Mommy decided to take it out to try on Juan Or. Turned out, his feet are just the right size for the slippers! Had Mommy taken it out later, Juan Or's feet would have overgrown the slippers.
The first time Mommy wore the slippers on Juan Or, he didn't quite know how to control his feet in such a way that when he walks, the slippers won't slip out. Everytime Mommy fitted the slippers onto his tiny feet, the slippers slipped out immediately when he started walking! Then few weeks later, Mommy happened to see this cute pair of blue hippopotamus plush indoor slippers sold in The Store Sri Petaling for RM5 only (it was Baby Fair and is still on now). Mommy just can't resist buying it since it's so cute and cheap. This hippo indoor slipper has garters at the heel to help secure little feet in the slippers. Turned out, walking on the hippo slippers was good practice for Juan Or to walk with the Japanese-styled rubber slippers!
The cute pair of plush hippopotamus indoor slippers for RM5 only! Mommy had wanted to take a video of Juan Or wearing this but was always unsuccessful because either the handphone was not conveniently around or by the time the handphone was ready, Juan Or refused to wear it!
So the following weekend, when Papa and Mommy brought Juan Or to visit our new house (where the Japanese-styled rubber slippers are put), Juan Or don't seem to have anymore problem walking with the Japanese slippers. The slippers don't slip out easily from his little feet anymore unless he is lifting his leg high to cross a barrier, like this video:
